I don't use primary optics which are not made by myself.

comment Monitoring / metric collection for system collectives that change a lot in time (a.k.a. cloud)
It may look too broad, but that's exactly the scenario I'm facing - doing things in a provider-independent fashion, as much as possible.

OS metrics, application metrics. Everything you would collect with Munin.

I made an edit to the question - no, I'm talking general case, any cloud provider, not just OpenStack.

comment store log files in the cloud, when servers are not in the cloud
That also sounds like a doable thing, thank you. I'm concerned about price. It's up to 2.5TB of compressed logs (for a 5 year interval). Just storing the zipped files in S3 is cheap - but then of course it's hard to search. I really need to figure out how much more expensive is it to keep data in large S3 volumes.

comment store log files in the cloud, when servers are not in the cloud
Thank you! We've talked about using Splunk before, so this combination might be acceptable (since it's sort-of in the same ballpark). Additionally, it sounds like it might also work and be useful after we've migrated the whole thing into the cloud. Question from someone not familiar with ES: in addition to indexes, I'd have to also store the actual data in S3, right? And that might introduce some overhead? Also, is the data stored in compressed form?

comment How to keep: daily backups for a week, weekly for a month, monthly for a year, and yearly after that
I actually don't have separate directories. It was written to dump files into an S3 bucket. Once everything is in one place, the total amount of logic that you need to implement is about the same, no matter how you go about it.
